National Refugee Shabbat 2018 is a moment for congregations, organizations, and individuals around the country to create a Shabbat experience dedicated to refugees. This national event is a meaningful opportunity to deepen our understanding of today’s global refugee crisis, connect with the Jewish movement for refugees, commit (or recommit) to taking action, and either celebrate your community’s achievements in working with refugees or launch new efforts.

We will have two guest speakers from International Rescue Committee: Stephen Allen on Friday evening and Sharon Singer on Saturday morning. Also the Safar family (our adopted refugee family from Iraq) will be joining us on Saturday as we honor them on this special Shabbat.
